know was the same $716 billion in savings that paul ryan put into his budget, and which all of those republicans voted for. why? because it's about smart way of managing medicare. it is not taking away a single benefit. it is not cutting off a single beneficiary. it's asking the providers to manage their care better. and that was a smart thing to do. that's why paul ryan supported it, and every fact checker, not just cnn, but every fact checker that has looked at this has said it is a lie, pants-on-fire lie. >> newt gingrich, a pants-on-fire lie. >> this is baloney. what they're saying is you can take $716 billion out of a program magically but you won't have taken $716 billion out of the program. now, that is simply a denial of how the real world works. there's a reason virtually every doctor is opposed to obama care. they think it's going the lead to more bureaucracy, more red tape, lower payments, less desirable, already half the doctors in the country will not accept new medicare patients. there are hospitals starting to say we're not going to accept medicare patients. this is a
sides do. this is what paul ryan said on fox yesterday. listen to this. >> president obama's a very -- he's a very gifted speaker. the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debater. he's done these kinds of debates before. this is mitt's first time on this kind of a stage. >> what i love about this particular stage of proceedings, for the first debate, is the way you're both prepared to tell such ghastly lies about each other. paul ryan finally saying all the things about what a great speaker president obama is, how hopeless mitt romney is. the pair of you are playing the same game, lower expectations so far, they just have to breathe to be victorious. >> i think that there's no question that the expectation game is real. everyone plays it. having been involved in a number of presidential debates in the past, there's a certain give and take running up to it. i wouldn't be surprised tomorrow or wednesday, somebody makes a crazy charge or someone in a campaign will do something to try to refocus the run-up to the debate. but i think the fact is the ameri
and paul ryan. let me make a prediction. i think joe biden will verbally destroy paul ryan, and i think he will the salvation of barack obama. >> you want to bet? >> i tend to agree with you, piers. senator biden is someone who is a fire brand for sure. and one of the things that came out of this debate, we can all agree president obama did not bring his "a" game and romney had a good night it will take a lot more to undo what has taken two years to burn in voters' brains. >> biden is the champion of the middle class, and that's what we want to hear. >> look, i'm going to put myself out there i won't promise 12 million jobs. >> don't bet $10,000 either. >> well, i never do that, i'm not a betting lady, but i will bet a cocktail or two. >> the reason i think you're wrong -- i've watched the convention speeches and i thought joe biden, with the possibility of bill clinton, made the best speech. >> absolutely. he will bring it. >> and i think joe biden will destroy paul ryan. >> absolutely not. absolutely not. >> i think you're wrong. >> are you absolutely wrong. when you -- when you let joe
-prepared for this debate. i would remind you, he didn't do that well against sarah palin, so -- but also, paul ryan is a real policy wonk. he knows all the details. so if i were advising paul ryan, and i am not, they just haven't asked for it, i would say be careful that you don't come across as somebody who gets down into the weeds about omb numbers and cbo and sequestration. a lot of these things that the average americans are really not familiar with. he wants to be clear. joe is a very -- excuse me, the vice president is a very attractive guy and if i were him, i would be playing on that as well. >> senator, two things, if i may. one is the ongoing situation regarding the death of ambassador christopher stevens in libya. lots of vagueness about what really went on in the days leading up to this and indeed, afterwards. what is your assessment of where we are now? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague, and that is five days after, five days after what was very quickly determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador to the u.n. to every major new
palin, and so -- but also, paul ryan is a real policy wonk. he knows all the details. so if i were advising paul ryan, and i am not -- i mean, they just haven't asked for it -- i would say be careful that you don't come across as somebody who gets down into the weeds about omb numbers and cbo and sequestrati sequestration, a lot of these things that the average americans really aren't familiar with. he wants to be clear. the vice president is a very attractive guy, and if i were him, i would be playing on that as well. >>> we have the situation of the death of ambassador christopher stevens in libya. lots of vagueness about what really went on in the days leading up to this and indeed afterwards. what is your assessment of where we are now? >> what is not vague, and that is five days after what was very quickly determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador of the u.n. to every major news outlet saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration because of a hateful video. that's probably one of the worst things that i have ever observ
, their top surrogates are out on the campaign trail. paul ryan speaking out for romney in iowa. >> a handful of states will determine this outcome. a handful of states will determine which way our country goes. so you not only have a huge responsibility, you have a tremendous opportunity. >> meanwhile, michelle obama has been stumping for her husband, the president, in ohio. >> this election will be even closer than the last one. that is the only guarantee. understand that. >> against that backdrop i sat down with the man who shocked the political establishment when he was elected governor of one of the biggest states of the union, arnold schwarzenegger has always been bigger than life. it all came crashing down in a very big way. i first interviewed him in the early '90s. since then he's had of course seen the end of his marriage to maria shriver and the end of his two terms as governor. he tells the story in graphic detail in his new book, "total recall." arnold schwarzenegger joins me now. welcome. >> thank you. >> try to imagine what it must have been like to be you for the last year. th
